AN ECO-RESPONSIBLE RALLY
For the second year in a row, the AFRICA ECO RACE and the AMADE Mondiale, a Monegasque association acting in favor of the children’s protection, are partnering up with up to provide the Senegalese and Mauritanian rural schools with portable solar lamps and chargeable docks during the rally. These lamps will enable children to use light on their way back from school in the evening and study in the best conditions possible.
Our environmental action would be to replace petrol lamps, one of the main causes of mortality in Africa, with the solar lamps. To do so, we propose to our participants to buy solar lamps. A way for them to compensate with the carbon print their vehicles leaves all year round. 6 lamps = 1200/CO2 = emission of a 4×4 for 15 days.
The ambitious objective is also to deliver with our trucks, a maximum of lamps on top of the thousand we brought on the 2018 Edition.
In parallel, we will be continuing the usual campaign on tree planting in Mauritania, created in Nouakchott on the second edition of the AFRICA ECO RACE.
ADRIANA, AMBASSADRESS OF THE 11th EDITION
As in 2017, Adriana, co-host of the French TV Show “Les pouvoirs extraordinaires du corps humain” will be present aside Jean-Louis SCHLESSER to mark the start of the race on December 30th in Monaco:
“I look forward to being part again of the AFRICA ECO RACE by being present at the technical and administrative checks in Menton, as well as the big start in Monaco. Two years ago, I met the Africa Eco Race team, a large family, with a common passion for African adventure, in which you find a simple and convivial atmosphere. This experience through Morocco, Mauritania and Senegal is one filled with courage, performance, solidarity and respect for the lands and populations of this beautiful African continent. This is what motivates me to come and support the competitors on the starting line.”
